The new Maglus stylus brush tip – Painting from dawn to dusk


How many pictures could you create in a day?

We sat artist and animator Fergal Brennan down, equipped with nothing more than a brush-tipped Maglus stylus and an iPad (using Procreate app), in front of the ever changing light outside his window. His singular goal was to complete 5 minute sketches from 7am to 7pm.

How did he get on? Wonderfully! He managed to produce 65 very beautiful sketches. We were so impressed, that we convinced him to composite them into a 30 second animation, complete with soundscape. The result can be seen below, highly evocative and available to be enjoyed by anyone who would like a 30 second stroll down Sandymount Strand in Dublin, Ireland.

An artist’s insight to using Maglus – Susan Muratugh

Happy Monday guys, Paula here. I thought it was appropriate to share this feel good post today and get the week off to a positive start. So, read on and enjoy!

In the short time I’ve been working at Maglus, I’ve realised that the Maglus customers are more than ‘customers’. They’re loyal followers and supporters who genuinely care about our brand. Interacting with these lovely people is what I view as a perk of my job. An example being, US Artist – Susan Murtaugh. I’ve only been chatting to Susan a few weeks, but am hugely impressed by her amazing art and warm personality! I was surprised and equally delighted to receive a glowing review of Maglus from her. Rest assured, she took the time to write the content below without being asked(harassed or bribed!)

As the saying goes – “Its nice to be important, but more important to be nice”
So here at Maglus, it goes without saying that we’ll continue to be nice. If every customer is half as satisfied as Susan, we’ll be doing something right!

Here’s a little info on Susan

Maglus Brush Tip Review by Paul Kercal

We’ve a guest blogger this week: say hi to talented tablet artist and teacher Paul Kercal.

Exciting things are happening in our little Maglus world. We are launching a new tip soon – a Brush Tip for all the Picasso enthusiasts out there.

We wanted to give you – the Maglus users, an insight into how the new tip works. What better way than to ask an artist to test it out! So we teamed up with Paul and offered him a sneak peak at the new product. He was happy to do so and give his feedback, which he turned into a blog post.

We think the Brush Tip is a great addition to the Maglus family – but we’re biased of course!
Have a read and see what our reviewer thinks

Chris Hadfield, a Space Oddity

We’ve a guest blogger this week: accomplished digital designer Sailesh Vaghela walks us though the creation of his breathtaking winning entry to our Draw Chris Hadfield competition.

Hi my name is Sailesh, I created the winning entry for the Chris Hadfield competition set up by the fine people at Applydea. The competition was to create a piece of art using the Maglus stylus, and to have Chris Hadfield as the main focus.

This blog post will explain some of the processes in how I created my winning piece, all done with the awesome Maglus stylus.
